Review: Forever Friday: A Novel
Forever Friday: A Novel by Timothy Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is an amazing love story of two people committed to not letting life divide them. If you enjoyed The Notebook then you will probably enjoy this one too.
The basic gist: Adam is given the task of selling the possessions of a deceased woman and happens upon some photo albums that contain numerous postcards dated every Friday for many years. Each postcard is a love poem. Having recently been divorced (not of his own choosing) he becomes determined to learn about the couple the postcards belong to and finding the secret to their lasting love.
Even better is that the story is loosely based upon the life of the author's great-aunt and uncle. So not only is this an amazing love story, but it really is an amazing love story. And the characters are so well developed you quickly grow to love both Huck and Gabe (the main characters). The book follows their romance from before their first meeting through their death and Adam's discovery. And it leaves us with hope for new love as well.
So if you are looking for a love story that will sweep you off your feet, this is it!
